Intimate Weddings in Maine

“With the loons calling on the mist covered lake and the reflection of the foliage on the water, the Wolf Cove Inn was a perfect setting to celebrate my niece’s wedding. This Inn has a spectacular setting on the lakeside, lovely, spacious rooms and gourmet breakfasts. Visiting in October is the perfect time as the colors were outstanding. Someday, we look forward to returning.” – Merryman5, TripAdvisor.com

“The Wolf Cove Inn was perfect for our small wedding. Everyone was able to stay on site the night before and night of the wedding. The location right on the lake gave an opportunity for our guests (all but 4 from out of state!) to enjoy a summer weekend in Maine! The grounds are beautiful and provided a lot of versatility for pictures and there was plenty of space for the kids to run around. Many of us used the water toys available. My groom and I even woke up early for a sunrise row boat ride. The lake was so peaceful and beautiful, I’m glad we were able to have that quiet moment before our wedding activities took over.” – Kelly F., TripAdvisor.com

It’s Intimate!

It might be just the two of you. Or maybe you want to include up to 12 guests. In either case, it’s small and as such so much more intimate and personal. And by keeping it small, there are so many things you don’t have to worry about. No tents, bands, big receptions and so on. As told to us by one couple – “We were planning our wedding and realized it was going to cost $50,000. We figured we might as well just set our money on fire.”

Beautiful, Serene Location

Right on the shores of Tripp Lake in Poland Maine, Mother Nature blesses us with some gorgeous scenery. We have two acres of private, lakefront property in a quiet, residential neighborhood. Surrounded by majestic pines and oaks, and fronted by our pristine lake, nature’s beauty is felt everywhere.

Hassle Free Elopements In Maine

You really only have to do two things:

  1. If a resident of Maine, go to your town hall and obtain your marriage license. If you are coming from out of state, obtain your marriage license at any town hall in Maine. They are open Monday through Friday, except for holidays. So plan your trip accordingly,
  2. Show up with said license, and say “I Do”!


That’s it. We’ll take care of everything else. We’ll even file the license with the town once things are official. Read here for your guide to Maine elopements and intimate weddings.
